Consulting

Any single folks here have a dog? I've been dreaming about one since I was 12 and I'm wondering how (in)feasible it is

If you an intense work schedule ( and you probably ) do, don't get one. No point having a dog locked up at home all day without any time and attention. It's like having a child.

I just got one, but thankfully my SO is there. If you have family nearby then that can make a difference. Otherwise now that I'm in the situation I realize how selfish it would be for me to have one if it was just me.

I'm still dreaming. Dog sitters are as expensive as childcare

I've got one. Costs approx $1k a month for a good boarding place while I travel.

I've got my dog 3 years before I started in consulting. He doesn't stay at home, he goes to the best day care in my area and plays with other dogs all day. Saying it's selfish to have a dog is really myopic.

I got one. Left for work one week. Came home to a body. Yay consulting!

I have an adorable 2yr old pup and second EY1; cost roughly $200-$250 per week for daycare and boarding but it's still worth it to come back home to a pet that's always excited to see you!!! 🐶

Yeah @P1 that's what I figure. It would be so selfish and so expensive. Ugh damn 😫

The most crushing part is when he sees my suitcase Monday morning and won't come out of his crate. Seriously, crushing.

Thoughts on stipulating to negligence from a plaintiff’s perspective? At first I thought it was a good idea because it obviously saves time and money and saves you from the possibility of your client receiving nothing. I practice in a contributory negligence state and my client wasn’t rear-ended she was side swiped while at a complete stop. Negligence is still fairly clear but I can envision a reality where a jury disagrees....

Feeling super pissed off right now. My very pregnant Wife and I (and toddler) are living with my bro in law and his wife (who’s also pregnant) until our house is finished in the beg of sept. Well my wife is due in 6 weeks and my sister in law just bought a plane ticket to visit her sister in Arizona for her baby shower in like two weeks. I feel like this is super selfish of her because she’s not only putting her life at risk but also my wife and baby’s! Debating moving out and Air BnBing it
